Swedish Royals Welcome Turkish President

Following the death of Princess Lilian yesterday, the Swedish Royal Family has changed their schedule this week: Princess Victoria’s name day celebrations tomorrow are cancelled and all events on Saturday have been cleared for the funeral. Today however, King Karl Gustaf and Queen Silvia welcomed Turkish Prime Minister Abdullah Gül and his wife Hayrüsinna Gül for a state visit as planned. Queen Silvia wore a plain black fur hat on the side of her head.

Princess Madeleine, Prince Carl Philip, Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel also attended the welcome, all in black mourning dress. Madeleine wore a black fascinator on the back of her head while Victoria wore a simple rounded pillbox. She also wore a small brooch given to her by Prince Bertil and Princess Lilian.
